The issue is AVI isn't a format so much as a container (the box that the video format resides in so to speak). An AVI can have XviD, DviX or H/x.264 video and maybe even others.

Yes, it is. The videos are labeled by their codec. Check the documentation of the software you used to create the AVI file to find out which codec is used. DivX is the most common.

You may be right, but I don't think so. For example, XviD is a video codec, but it isn't available as a label, while 3GP is listed and is a container format. Some confusion arises from the fact that MPEG-4 and DivX, for example, are used to represent both a video codec and a container format.

I hope someone from The Internet Archive will answer my original question.

I don't care what format or storage container, I have always wanted to see this film. Thank you.
